Thanks Ray.

Here's where I am right now with all those castings glued in place. Bare styrene is
really tough for me to photograph, this will look a lot better with a coat of primer on
it. I have also cut all the additional walls I will need from foam core and glued a skin
of styrene on them. (two short side walls and the three walls for the entryway).

Bob, looks good.
Would lowering the contrast help your photo? If the background had a lighter tone closer to the same value as the white styrene, but a distinctly different color that might help.

Thanks Bill,

You are most likely right, I also think the overhead light washed out detail on the castings.
I know I'm a lousy photographer. I'll try a few things as I move along.

Very impressive!
Which glue do you use for styrene to resin castings?

Jim, Dave, Terrell, Pete, and Mike, thanks for the nice words, much appreciated.

Dave, I use ZAP-A-GAP Medium CA+. Most other "super" glues would work too.

Terrell, I have a great example to follow.

Thanks Bob,
When I'm ready to start modeling again I'll have a good handle on resin casting and glueing.
Appreciate the help!

It is so very interesting watching you two building this attractive building with different approaches.

It's only make-believe

Bob', how nice those castings look applied to the building. One trick to try in photographing the white polystyrene is to have no background and surrounding light available in the shot. A black complete background unlit will show the white nicely...
